Comment: Omg, my husband just found your card frozen on our porch! It’s bewn awful here. The postman must have had it blown out of his hands or the box or whatever....thank you and sorry for rating so late❤️
Comment: Hi Kelly! Thank you for the lovely Christmas card and for the super cute animal stickers :) I am jealous that you live only an hour away from Disney! I have to take a plane ride to get to the nearest Disneyland to my home :))
Comment: Hi Kelly! THANK YOU! This was such a special gift today. I love Sophia's artwork and your work on the envelope is simply stunning. What kind of markers do you use? They're so pretty. Thank you for sharing your story with chronic pain, sending you very gentle hugs. Sadly, I was just told I have to quit using ibuprofen for pain, which was only maybe once a week. Most of the time I just ignore the pain, though of course that's difficult. I have not had much luck with CBD oil, but it's not legal in this state to have the full strength oil so maybe if it becomes legal I will try other options and the cream. It's hard for people to understand if they see me out and enjoying something that it's going to take me 3 days (at least) to sleep and recover. At any rate, thank you so much for this lovely card and the postcards (awesome!) and your daughter's art (spectacular!) :):):)
Response: I am happy that it found you well. I never talk about my medical issues but I got so passionate in that card because I have been dealing with so many people over the holidays who don’t “get it”. They all thought, I was being rude but in reality the stress they were putting me under was causing a major flairup.
I had to sleep the two days after Christmas. Luckily, my daughter asked for stamps for her swaps and used all her new art supplies. (In my bed)-I hate sparkles. All in my bed. LoL. My husband bought me a weighted blanket that I have wanted so badly and it has helped me sleep through the pain. I have not had one night (since Christmas we’re i woke up in the night bc of pure pain). It’s 15lbs and it’s magical. 🦄. My doctors in Florida are pushing me for the medical “plants”🌿 since it’s legal here but I am too scared and also it is very very expensive to get the card that you need to carry and then purchase.
My markers are always sharpies. They have gotten so very expensive recently. I had a coupon for half off a set of the “art sharpies”. It was still going to be more than I was willing to spend on my doodles. Every so often at a yard sale I will purchase a bag of pens or markers and get lucky.
Comment: A dozen hearts if we could! Your swap just came today and they are always over the top and we've only been in 2 together! Our packages seem so boring now! LOL Thank you so much for the awesome socks and the extras!!
Comment: Loved your card! And it's always nice to hear from a fellow New Englander, especially someone from Connecticut :) Not a lot of snow yet but that could change oh so quickly as you know. Wishing you all the best this holiday season!
Comment: Hi Kelly! Love the snowmen joke ~ snowflakes for breakfast, lol
It is a beautiful Christmas card with the male red cardinal (Ohio's State Bird) ~ picture perfect! Also love the special stickers! Thanks so much and I'm wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas & the Best of 2019 !
Comment: Thanks for this excellent postcard with questions to ponder. I spend most of my time with men and children. LOL We have no snow yet, the temps have been staying around the 40's, with cloudy days and rainbows peeking. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Hi Kelly! Thanks so much for the lovely postcard and quote. I lived in Florida for two years and so missed the lilac bushes and snow! My mom loved lilacs and would put them in mason jars during the spring. Thanks again, and Merry Christmas and all the best of 2019. Take care ~ Judy
Comment: What a special package! Loved the fun, doodled holiday envelope... And each washi is wrapped so cute. And I especially appreciate your prayers for my dad. He is actually doing great although I am still staying with him and my mom to help with things. Thanks so much for everything, you are a terrific swap partner!
Comment: Thanks for all of the awesome ephemera! Celtic dance classes sound like a lot of fun - I hope your daughter enjoys them! I've never wood-burned myself, but always thought it was really neat :)
Comment: All the hearts!! Thank you so much for resending even though it was my stupid mailpersons fault! I love all the stickers and will certainly put them to good use! My little has already stolen some 😂
Comment: Thank you so much for all the lovely stickers. I need like 10 sheets of those cactus stickers, loooooove them. Thank you for your nice note, I found you on Instagram. Would you mind if I wrote back?
Comment: Oops -- You forgot a stamp on this one. Luckily mailman gave it to me when I forked up the cash :)
Update -- You didn't have to send me stamps! You're so sweet for doing so, though! Sounds like your PO is wonky! :) Hope your little one is feeling better! Happy Holidays!
Response: We had an issue with a few of them. I will be sending you some stamps in the mail to make up for it.
Comment: Thank you Kelly for the wonderful Fall socks. The fact that your five year old found the only fall themed socks in FL makes them even more special and the heart rating. Loved the little extra envelope of ephemera as well. Thanks again my friend!
Comment: Thanks so much! I love everything, especially those pipe cleaners! The colors are so good, I’ll have to find some idea on Pinterest to make with them.
P.S. I sent a link to your email for Pipsticks! I just get the 9.95 pack and that’s plenty of stickers for me, I’m also subscribed to their printable planner sticker club. Plus they have great customer service!
Response: I signed up and you should be getting a credit towards free stuff!!! I am so excited!
Comment: Awesome swap! Sorry i cant give you more hearts. You deserve more for going on a man hunt for the things i like. Love snoopy and all the die cuts, atc cards, tags, eyelets and the flower charms. The time you put into the envelope , awesome. thanks
Comment: Thank you for a great package! The paw print for the Cricut is so adorable! Thank you for the cotton ball tip as well. I have a ‘handicap’ pen which is about five times the size of a regular pen and this helps with writing. I will try adding cotton balls too. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you so much for all the cutouts! I love it all <3
Response: Thanks for the thank you note that was so sweet. Anytime you want to do a private swap message me. I love cutouts in my journaling. I have to get to the library and get some new magazines that they recycle/sell for .25$. 😍
Comment: Thank you for all of these stickers! They are perfect! I had to reread my profile after reading your note about the reward stickers, LOL I sound dreadful omg but I hate themmm lol thank you for a wonderful swap!
Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful card. It's definitely on my list to see in a few years when the kids get older. Thanks for joining as well and for the facts to go with the card. A nice touch.
Comment: OMG!! I know you couldn't hear my squeal of delight on such an awesome, thoughtful package. I love everything in it and have already started making some ATCs with my goodies!! And yes I am a nurse and adore the nurse stickers. They are super cute!!
Comment: Thank you so so much for your lovely package!! It was such a thoughtful, touching surprise, and I loved everything you sent. I sent you a thank you letter this morning and will pm you for future correspondences :) thank you again!
Comment: 3+ years and finally getting a rating to you! I do feel bad and I am embarrassed about it also. I have been on an emotional roller coaster and I am hoping that it has finally came to an end. Life is not always fair. But we will survive! A while back, I promised myself to make right all the people and ATC's I have neglected to complete. It has been bugging me, as this has never been how I usually handle things. A few days late possibly, but always completed. I am so sorry about this and I do hope that this long awaited rating, will bring your paperwork to a 100% close at for anything I still owe you. If there is something else that you are missing from me, please let me know asap. Again ... Sorry!!!
Comment: Thank you for a lovely destash =) Your daughers business cars are so sweet =) She should get herself a paypal address ;P
Response: She has one with her EBay store that is the EBay store name on her card. We sell craft items on eBay and she is always helping wrap items and mail them out. She tells me that she is working...
Comment: Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for my package!!!!! You made my day and week! I loved everything and definitely will be able to use it all!!! Thank you again so much! (If I could give you higher than a 5 I would!)
Comment: Thank you soo much for all of my goodies!! I'd love to do a swap in the future with you after we move.. We're starting to pack right now to move in June.. Once I'm settled then I think it would be fun!
Comment: It wasnÂ´t easy to find out from whom the swap was as there was no swap or username mentioned, but the envelope is really lovely, thanks a lot :). Swap was sent 3 days late due to family emergency. Thank you, best wishes, Betty
Comment: I love small parcel box you sent!!! So many things I can use. The beautifully artistic pen, the owl stickers, the rubber stamp and the cute colored small clothes pins. Thank you for thinking of my 4 yr old granddaughter. She loved everything especially the Shirley Temple postcard. When she died my little 4 yr old had no idea who she was. We went on the internet and found videos of her movies. My granddaughter loved her and started singing "On the Good Ship Lollipop" all of the time. She loved the snowman pencil and Hello Kitty stamp. Hope we swap again.
Comment: Wow, what a bonus!! I love both cards a lot! I appreciate that you went through the trouble to make another one even though you worked so hard on the 5x7! These are certainly going to find a special place in my books.
Comment: Thank you so much for the large package of great smashbook stuff. I will be sharing it with my friends, I am having a smashbook/50th birthday party for myself on 3/29. Kaydan will love the Wizard of Oz & other stickers you sent her. So thoughtful of you.
Comment: Wow lady, you went crazy. Thank you so much. I have no idea how to sew, but I LoVE that fabric...been wanting a pen case, so I may attempt to make one out of that. So much fun going through your box, thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the cute package! I really liked the ATC, the sleeves are SUPERCUTE (already got one in use XD) and the photos were such a nice surprise, I love seeing glimpses of life outside Finland ^__^ I'd give you a 6 if I could X3
Comment: Ummmm I wish I could give you 4 hearts!! Haha. The package you sent me was FANTASTIC! I LOVED IT. The button giftset was so CUTE! Haha. You definitely made my day and I couldn't be happier!! You rock!! I hope you are having a wonderful week! Happy Swapping!
Comment: What a fabulous Zentangle ATC you sent me! Thank you so very much! I'm late rating. I was in an automobile accident and broke my right wrist. That's my dominant hand, so I haven't been through all the mail carefully until today.
You have a very imaginative style, nicely balanced. Thanks so much!
Comment: Kelly, after reading your profile I have changed 1 rating that I had given you. I wish you and your family health and happiness.
Response: Please re-consider this. I have sent this out today. If you read my profile you will see I have had them completed but due to complications with my pregnancy I have been in the hospital. My daughter was premature and I spent the last two months in the hospital.
This was all noted in my profile. Thanks
Comment: What a cute punch out lacey flower card.Where did you ever find such a small little clock. I liked the theme a moment in time. Very creative you are. The extra Vellum stickers will definitely be used. Thanks a bunch.
Comment: So sorry it took me awhile to rate. Such a big stack of Christmas cards and ATCs to rate! Thank you for the beautiful ATC. Love it! Also for the extras and the greeting! <3 merry Christmas! PS I like the forever stamp you used on the envy.
Comment: Wow, I loved how you put this atc together. The little string at the top adds a vintage feel to it. Thank you for the Halloween owls. They will certainly be put to use. Excellent all around pkg. Thank you.
Comment: This is one of those packages that totally exceeded my expectations of what swap-bot is. I loved everything in it; the card, the message, the goodies and the two gorgeous ATC's. Those will be going in my private collection. Thank you for everything!
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely ATC, your card/note, and the extra pink goodies. I definitely understand how you feel about breast cancer awareness, with your grandmother being affected by it. My mom and her sister both had breast cancer also.
Comment: Hi got your white ATC today, thanks for the extra papers. I will surely find a good use for them.ha ha I am still working on mine, having trouble figuring out how to get my message to show up. , But I am not giving up. ha ha, I will get it yet, I made snow people, Willie Melt and Betty Won't. ha ha Should have them ready to go by monday or tuesday. My mother was from Connecticut, a little town called Rocky Hill, pretty state.
Comment: Thank-you so much for the cute ATC, I have to agree it was a hard one to make. I also love the card and the leaves you cut for me, im going to put them on the cards im making for my grandkids.
Comment: Very adorable! Send me a message if you want lots more watercolour tutorials! I have a bunch of blog posts. It's actually the hardest paint to work with IMHO. Also, look for free videos online with retailer Jerry's Artarama. They have over 5,000 art tutorial videos online. ^_^
Comment: Way to go! You rocked the ATC Pink or breast cancer swap! Love the creativity you showed in your artwork. Also, way for creating other ATC's to promote the awareness of yearly mammograms! We women must be spreading the word, because early detection of cancer is VERY important! Thank you again and enjoy your well deserved heart!
Comment: Love the ATC, the ribbons/fibers, card and note. Thank you much for all. I see on your profile that you are a poodle person...me too! I don't have a dog right now though...my standard, Jodie, had to be put to sleep in April. Oh, how I miss her.
Response: Oh I am so sorry. My Toy Poodle is 11 and walks on three legs because her arthritis kicks up in the cold (Then she babies it the rest of the year!) My husband and I were just talking about getting our Labradoodle a Standard to play with, since my little one doesn't want to play anymore. I am on the rescue list, so if a poodle is in need they will call me. Once again I am so sorry for your loss!
